Due to the short duration of time spent at intake, programs are not available to offenders. During the intake process each offender is evaluated through interviews, reports and diagnostic tests. This evaluation forms the basis of the offenders' facility and program assignment.

While at RDC, every offender will receive:

  • Complete medical examination
  • Dental examination
  • Psychological interview
  • Lab work, including taking DNA samples and blood draws (to test for certain communicable diseases)
  • TB testing
  • Education testing (TABE – Test of Adult Basic Education) is also administered to offenders.
